High Point Market – Fall 2013

Last month, our merchandising team made the trek just down the road to High Point Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina. For those not familiar with this trade show, it is the largest furniture show in the world with over 11 million square feet of show space. Needless to say, we always have a ton of fun exploring the latest trends and bringing these stylish products back to our fabulous customers on Rosenberry Rooms! Here are some highlights and notable trends of our trip this fall.

We were able to visit with the fabulous Jane and Billy from Stray Dog Designs. Not ones to shy away from color, their booth was an explosion of cheerful hues and whimsical designs. We especially fell in love with the fun chicken inspired pieces!

We popped into the Ro Sham Beaux booth that was dripping in lovely glass beads and kaleidoscope-like colors. Those agate pendants and sconces are so dreamy! We were especially smitten with the miniature glass base lamps with itty bitty gold tassels. These would look so chic on a child’s nightstand (or parents, too!).

Surya was next up on the list and, as usual, was chock full of the most amazing rug designs. We were coveting this multi-colored chevron rug as well as the oh-so-romantic white floral rug. The ladybug rugs are pretty darned cute, too! Surya also has a fantastic selection of poppy accessories. Our favorites were the polka dot pillows, gilded chevron pillows, preppy hounds-tooth pillows, and beach-y striped poufs.

The artwork by Oliver and Mabel is one of our favorites, and we love the story behind the pieces. Named after the artist’s own adopted dog, he donates 7% of sales to help keep stray dogs healthy and cared for. I want the Peony artwork for my home!

Wrapping up our day, we saw a few new furniture collections. Drawing inspiration from vintage furniture and gray weathered finishes, these girls’ furniture collections are simply darling. We are suckers for an ultra girly room!

As I am sure you can see, the biggest theme from this market was color – and lots of it! From jewel tones to tropical hues, color was splashed all over furniture, lighting, decor, and artwork. Another trend that kept showing its furry little face around market? Foxes! On rugs, bedding, and accessories, these fun foxes would be perfect for a little gentleman’s nursery or modern boy’s room.

High Point Furniture Market Round Up!

High Point Furniture Market round 2 – check! We spent the last 2 days roaming the showrooms of High Point Market, falling in love with some amazing new designers, checking out the new products from our current vendors, and eating a little too much free candy. 48 hours and several blisters later, we found some really great pieces that I can’t wait to share with you and some that will be added to RosenberryRooms.com as soon as they become available!

Our first stop was the gorgeous Young America Showroom. Not only did we get to see some of the current collections in person but they also announced they are introducing two brand new collections and some new finish options! Here a few sneak peeks of what is to come as well as a look at some of the beautiful pieces you can find now on RosenberryRooms.com.

Switching gears a little from traditional to more modern furnishings, we stopped by the ZUO showroom. The first word that came to mind when we saw this ultramodern collection in person was…COOL! The pieces are unlike anything you’ve ever seen and would be great for a teenager’s room or kid’s playroom making for the ultimate hip hangout. From high tech bubble lighting to denim couches with british flag throw pillows, we were really impressed by the innovation and creativity of this line. You can find some of these pieces now at Rosenberry Rooms!

That red couch is actually made up of a few separate sectionals and comes in multiple colors!

In keeping with the modern, WOW pieces, we also ran into some really cool lighting as well as some furniture with a fun color blocking style by Oggetti! We are hoping to add some of these pieces soon to the site!

Remember those crazy chairs from our last High Point visit by Polart? Well they were back with more styles and more colors! Plus a new addition of these kidney bean shaped ottomans. Would you put these statement pieces in your home?

Ok, let’s jump back in to the more practical but equally exciting pieces, shall we? A visit to Sugarboo Designs showroom always brightens my mood and makes me forget about my aching feet for a least a few minutes. These vintage inspired prints and decor are perfect for kid’s rooms and really for any room in your home. A cheerful quote, a friendly reminder, a stylish accent and more from Sugarboo Designs always make for a welcome addition.

I always knew I loved the selection of painted mirrors we have on RosenberryRooms.com but after seeing them in person, I’m an even bigger fan. The endless array of color options and the whimsical, decorative designs are perfect for a child’s room! You can create your very own storybook theme with these playful mirrors that just scream quality, style and most importantly, fun!

And last but not least, just a few pieces that were too cool not to share. Practicality has its place at High Point Market but creativity and a whole lot of “over the top” pieces definitely make their mark and these furnishings do just that! I mean, how awesome are these painted branches chandeliers from Wish Designs USA?

Or these poufs made completely out of colored rubber bands from Dreamweavers?

Those are just a few of the amazing, beautiful and somewhat crazy pieces we saw at High Point Furniture Market. I hope you had fun following along and would love to hear what you think about them! Tell us in the comments below or share with us on facebook!

High Point Market Round Up – Part 2!

With so many great new lines at High Point Furniture Market, we had to split our round up in to two parts! Now although it’s called High Point Furniture Market, there are also some beautiful art, bedding and decor lines that have showrooms at market as well. This post highlights more of our favorites in these categories including some new pieces from lines already on RosenberryRooms.com as well as some from brand new vendors we are hoping to add soon! (Plus a few that don’t really fit with our offering but were pretty cool!)

One of the most eye-catching and beautiful displays at all of market was the Sugarboo Designs showroom. This eclectic collection includes unique picture frames, reclaimed wall art and vintage inspired prints. The quality of this line is amazing and each piece would definitely serve as stand-out, unusually attractive accent in any room of your home. Check out a few of these gorgeous pieces we saw and be sure to view the rest of the collection available here.

Speaking of vintage-inspired pieces, we also saw a wow-worthy showrooms with an amazing display of authentic models. From vintage airplanes to model sailboats to bookshelves in the shape of canoes, this line is a dream when designing a nautical or airplane-themed boys room! Each piece in this collection warrants a conversation and inevitably the question, “Where did you get that?”. They are all stand-out, high quality and beautifully designed historical reproductions guaranteed to ignite a spirit of exploration and adventure in your child’s room (or even in your husband’s office!).

They also had these hot air balloon mobiles which were simply amazing! These would look so cool as a group, hanging over a crib or kid’s bed, or for you party designers, for a boy’s explorer party. The possibilities are endless!

In the bedding section of the show, we saw the beautiful Bella Notte Linens collection. Let me just tell you, the fabrics, colors and just overall feeling you get from this line is pure bedding couture. And yes, that crib is suspended in the air. Maybe not the best idea for a nursery but definitely a conversation piece at the show!

Large, even oversized, upholstered headboards were another popular trend we noticed at the show. This one was definitely the biggest! How gorgeous are those lines? And that coral bedding? Makes me want a beach house…now.

One of the more unique collections of furniture and decor we saw was from a company called GuildMaster. This line had sort of a vintage European motif with naturalistic distressing and very creative designs. For example, a bench made to look like three chairs. Or three chairs made to look like a bench? I’ll let you decide!

Lots of Bohemian inspired pieces in this collection as well!

There were not a ton of art collections showing at market but we did find an absolutely adorable new line we plan to add very soon! I love the playful characters, bright colors and detail that goes into each piece. These are so cute for the nursery and can be personalized too!

Now this art display was actually within a furniture showroom but I thought the idea was so cute, I had to share! Instead of using framed art pieces, they just clipped them to the wall for a creative and fun display. You could use art prints or even display your child’s artwork this way for a unique look!

That about sums up our trip to market…well in addition to 5,000 other pieces of furniture I could share, but thought that might get a little repetitive. 😉 We hope you enjoyed our round up and look for a lot of these pieces available now on RosenberryRooms.com or coming soon!

 

High Point Market Round Up – Part 1!

High Point Market Week has officially ended and we are spent! Hundreds of showrooms, lots of walking, and too much free food later, we are glad to be back but excited about all the new trends and great pieces for 2012! We visited with some of our vendors like DwellStudio, Surya, Lea, Creations Baby, saw some of their amazing new pieces and recruited some exciting new lines for RosenberryRooms.com! I wanted to share with you some of our favorite new pieces, some of these are already available on the site, some we will be getting soon, and some were just too cool/strange not to share!

The Chevron trend still seems to be going strong. Which is fine by me because I love all things Chevron!

DwellStudio has some new rug designs in Chevron for Spring 2012 as well!

Also new from DwellStudio is this amazing collection of colorful and graphic pillows. Animal print, ikat and geometric prints were another popular trend. Not just on pillows but on bedding, rugs and even lighting!

Fun and funky lighting was spotted all over market. The Jonathan Adler showroom was full of white ceramic lamps in the shape of giraffes, seahorses, elephants and more! You can find most of these already available here.

These are great pieces for a modern nursery or even a stand out piece in a guest room or living room. How fun are those Dachshund bookends!?

We also saw table lamps from Ro Sham Beaux with the base made out of crayons. How cool is that for a kid’s room or playroom! We are hoping to get these added to the site soon as well.

I was thrilled to get to see lighting from Stray Dog Designs in person! We have their line available on our site but let me tell you, the pictures don’t do them justice. These lamps are so whimsical and fun and are such great accents in a child’s room or even a teen room. What’s not to love?

Ok, I guess I should get to the furniture since after all, that was the main theme of the show! I was just so impressed by all the decor! Although, we did see some really gorgeous, high quality furniture pieces that I want to share. We saw some amazing bunk beds for both boys and girls which we’ll be adding to the site soon. I love the stairs on this boy’s bunk bed, such a safe and stylish option. That cherry finish is beautiful in person!

Also from this line, is a beautiful girl’s bunk bed with a twin over full option. This line is available now on RosenberryRooms.com and we will be adding these new pieces as soon as their available. You can see the full collection here! Loving that Erika Fuschia Duvet Cover from Pine Cone Hill too!

We also visited the Creations Baby Furniture showroom and got to see one of my favorite collection in person. The Venezia Crib is quickly becoming one of our best sellers and it’s not hard to see why! Isn’t is stunning?

For those of you with a more cottage, beach style design aesthetic, our vendor Seabrook Classics was also in attendance, displaying some of their beautiful coastal furnishings.

Ok so I just have to share this new line we saw called PolART! Their furniture designs reminded me of something you’d see in Alice in Wonderland! Whimsical shapes, curvy lines, and bright, bold colors, I couldn’t pass up taking some pics!

Yes, that is a clock and those chairs are outdoor chairs! Could you find a place for those pieces in your home? What about these?…

So that’s the round up from day 1 of our trip! What do you think? Stay tuned for Part 2 of our fun (and exhausting) trip to High Point Furniture Market and be on the lookout for some of these new pieces on RosenberryRooms.com very soon!
